    Default Safari - IS IT SAFE

    Hey Guys, What would you say is the best browser to use on MAC OSX??

    I have recently met with a few users of MAC and they advise never to use Safari.

    What do you think???

    I always stick with firefox because its nice to have a consistent experience across all platforms (and there are add-ons to do pretty much anything).

    Safari isn't unsafe by any measure, I would actually say that its safer than firefox because Apple is very quick to push out security updates if there is ever a breach.

    It's nice to have the system integration. Only Safari can sync bookmarks to an iPhone, and it also has this neat dashboard widget creation tool.

    It's a personal choice, I suggest you try out a few mac browsers before you settle on one.

    Depends on what you do.

    Use FFx (Firefox) if you are one who just do occasional browsing, and you move between the different OS's. Flock if you are really, really into social networks; but mind you, both Firefox and Flock can "clutter" up if you have many tabs open, etc.

    If you are thinking about a fast browser while you still want to view all those FFx-compatible websites, Camino is the best choice. It's basically a better-integrated browser that's lightweight for the power user like me...

    Safari is for, um, the power user that thinks that whatever minute difference between the Gecko and Webkit renderers may make a difference in loading the 300 tabs that he has open.

    (Safari is just as fast, if not faster, than Camino)

    If you plan on using Safari, however, you might like to try out Webkit, which is a nightly release where you can get the most up-to-date, fastest browser out there, abeit a bit buggy.
